Yet, mysteriously, the movie was dropped from 200 theaters heading into its second week. It was dropped from theaters with 15 or 30 screens, even though it was a top ten earner in those specific multiplexes. The film's producer says he's never heard of a movie getting the boot in its second week after such a strong showing in its first. On top of that, moviegoers across the country have reported that even some of the theaters still showing the film are preventing people from actually seeing it. Showings have been canceled with no explanation. Other showings have been called "sold out" despite open seats. There would appear to be an active effort to blackball "Gosnell."

The censorship should not surprise us. The movie has met roadblock after roadblock, every step of the way. Most news outlets refused to even review the film. As of this writing, the review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes has only been able to find ten write ups of "Gosnell" across the entire media landscape. Robert Redford's movie about an old guy robbing banks, which made not much more than "Gosnell" in its opening weekend, has been reviewed well over 100 times.

And this is all in keeping with how the media and the left treated the actual events that the film is based on. That is to say, they didn't treat the events in any way at all. The serial murder of hundreds of infants at a "medical clinic" in a major American city was steadfastly ignored by the Left and the media. They didn't put their own spin on it. They didn't create a narrative to explain it away. They didn't engage in any arguments about it. They simply ignored it. There is something about Gosnell the person and "Gosnell" the movie that absolutely terrifies the Left. The story is so hazardous to their agenda, it so contradicts their narrative, that all they can do is shove the whole thing in a closet somewhere and pretend it never happened.

Dr. Gosnell’s actions are not condoned by women’s rights groups. There’s a difference between women’s health and the heinous acts of Dr. Gosnell.

Let's use the associative property here. Dr. Gosnell was an abortion doctor = performed abortions. His acts, while heinous, are merely that.

So, the associative property says your position is that there is a stark difference between women's health (i.e., the health of the woman and the care thereof) and performing abortions.

We finally agree on something.

Not sure it's a Blockbuster..
Talk about pressure ... it went from number 10 or 12 last weekend (depending on the reporting source) with zero media support ... to not even in the top 40 this weekend. Doing the math and based on simple stats, it should still list on this weekends box office report but it's nowhere to be seen on Box Office MoJo.

Hurry or you will miss your chance. It's being purged out of theaters ... and has even been "nominated" for deletion from Wikipedia.

It made $1,235,000 on 668 screens on it's first weekend. It was knocked out of 188 theaters and still made an additional $841,746 on it's second weekend in just 480 theaters.

You find generically stating "surgical procedures" is the same as "heinous acts"?

Which is it - was he just an OB-GYN who performed surgical procedures, or is it accurate to call those surgical procedures "heinous acts", as you did?
Fugging Butcher--murdering SOB.
Violator of the Hippocratic oath. Scumbag murdering the unborn for his own enrichment.
If any country in the world murdered so many black adults it would be called genocide and racist.

That rant is well worth a 100 bucks, for the enrichment of Planned Parenthood.

Dr Gosnell broke the law, and he's in prison for it.

Abortion is not a heinous act. Not at all.
